Had a number of good birds this weekend...
 
* Sandhill crane - over our home in Whitehouse yesterday
* Chuck-will's-widow - the bird discovered on May 15 continued yesterday
* Alder flycatcher - one at Old State Line and Whitehouse-Spencer, another e of Schwamberger 1/4 mile n of Old State Line, today
* Red-breasted nuthatch - Manore 1/4 mi s of Reed, yesterday
* Brown creeper - two singing near the OO Lodge, yesterday
* Summer tanager - 8 in different spots in OOPM, yesterday, and one at Secor today
* Yellow-throated warbler - in a group of sycamores ne of intersection of Schwamberger and Dorr, today
* Kentucky warbler - s of Old State Line about 1/8 mi e of Whitehouse-Spencer, today (probably the same bird that had been across road 150 yards of so west of this spot)
 
Several attempts to find the Red crossbills yesterday and this morning were unsuccessful.

The Chuck-will's-widow was calling again this morning, and I had an adult male Blue grosbeak singing persistently at the entrance to the Horse Riders Center on Jeffers Road. A Henslow's sparrow was also calling west of Girdham Road a couple hundred yards north of Reed Road.

The Chuck-will's-widow continues at OOPM as of last night. Interestingly, it only offered is croaking call while I was there from 9:30 to 10:15. A couple of whip-poor-wills, on the other were singing pretty persistently.
 
I also had a pair of Blue grosbeaks at Girdham and Reed yesterday morning.

There was a singing male Blue grosbeak at Lou Campbell Tallgrass Prairie at OOPM this morning. I had not seen one in this area during several previous trips there during June and July.
Purple martins are congregating daily in Tornado Alley, perching in many of the taller trees. There have been at least 50 there in recent days.

It would seem as though Smithjames from India is using this site to sell things.
